Theseus and the Minotaur

Theseus and the Minotaur

Theseus grew up without a father in ancient times. He was given a task to complete by his mother, the princess, in order to find out the identity of his father. The task was simple, pick up a huge rock and his mother would tell him who his father is. After finding out that his father is Aegeus, king of Athens, Theseus set off for Athens to began his quest of earning the reputation of a hero. As Theseus' mother had been with* Poseidon as well, Theseus also considered him his father.

After meeting his father, Theseus insisted on going on a quest to return what was owed to Minos, king of Crete. His father told him clearly that if he should survive he should display the white sail, and if not to have the ship display a black sail. However, that wasn’t quite on Theseus’ mind as much as slaying the Minotaur with the hope of being awarded something extraordinary.

* I think you mistranslated, or misunderstood this. According to the legend, Theseus' mom slept with (had sex with) both Aegus and Poseidon in the same night and is considered to be fathered by both of them.
